Zip Kicker Overspray on Clear Parts
« on: October 14, 2017, 05:43:19 pm »
I'm putting together a really cool '59 Cadillac Eldorado kit, and I got Zip Kicker overspray on the windshield.  It looks like the car was driven through a Martian sandstorm!  Is there a way to unfog the clear plastic?  I heard toothpaste, but thought best to ask you peeps what to do.

I know many people use toothpaste, but the best thing I have found for clear plastic model parts is automotive plastic polish which can be found at any auto parts store.  One bottle will last you forever.

There are many brands.  This is the one that I currently have.

I know the Boyd of Trekworks uses automotive polish when he has to repair a windscreen.

Ahh...the Boyd of Trekworks.  I like that!

Did you hear about the Irish Catholic Borg?  Yeah, his name is 4 of 17.
